Choosing the Best Shade of Brown Hair Colour for You

While some people might think all brown hair is the same, this couldn’t be further from the truth. With Renew’s wide range of brown hair colour, you have free reign to play with different shades and prove them wrong!
Before you do, though, you might want to be in the know about which shades of brown would be the most flattering on you. Choosing a colour from the same tonal family as your skin is the best way of doing this. We’ve put together some tonal guidelines for you.

Brown Hair Colour for Fair Skin Tones
Staying within two shades of your natural hair colour means that you’d probably best suit a medium brown colour. Stick to lighter strawberry tones or warmer red tones. Other suggested shades for fair skin tones include golden brown and mahogany. Avoid going too dark as fair skin usually doesn’t contain enough pigment to carry this off.

Brown Hair Colour for Medium Skin Tones
Medium brown hair colour is also a great option for those with sallow or yellow undertones in their skin. Colours falling between a caramel shade and a rich auburn shade are most complimentary on medium skin tones. Other shade suggestions include a deep walnut or a toffee brown. Make sure your choice of colour is relatively neutral – neither too warm nor too cool – and you’ll be all set.

Brown Hair Colour for Dark Skin Tones
Dark brown hair looks best on those with olive skin tones. Deep tones of brown with red highlights is particularly complimentary. Other shade suggestions include a chocolate or raven brown. For those with pinker undertones, something softer, like an amber shade would be best. People with darker skin tones should generally stay away from shades which are more than two shades lighter than their skin. These colours could clash – causing them to appear washed out.

Now all you need to do is pick the shade! Well, look no further than Renew’s wide range of brown hair colour. Shades include Light Golden Brown, Mulberry, Latte, Chocolate Brown, Chestnut Light, Rich Auburn Mahogany, Light Brown, Cappuccino, Mocha, Burgundy and Natural Brown.
